WHEREAS, sadly, recent high profile events within our country have sparked discussions of gun-control at the local, state and federal levels and include numerous gun-control proposals that assert to address gun violence while, in fact, many of these proposals would directly infringe upon the Second Amendment rights; and,
WHEREAS, the County of EI Dorado's economy and rural quality are supported by ranching, farming and natural resources, and that the right to keep and bear Arms is fundamental to our right to protect our families, our property, our livestock, and our livelihood, and that the residents of this County respect the rights afforded by the Second Amendment through the recognition and support of responsible firearm ownership, training and awareness; and,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors of the County ofEI Dorado supports all discussions seeking new ideas to protect our citizens from violence but cannot abide by any provision infringing upon the Second Amendment.
PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Board of Supervisors of the County of El Dorado at a regular meeting of said Board, held the 29th day of January, 2013, by the following vote of said Board:
I CERTIFY THAT: Ayes:veerkamp, Mikalaco, Nutting, Briggs Noes: none Absent:
THE FOREGOING INSTRUMENT IS A CORRECT COPY OF THE ORIGINAL ON FILE IN THIS OFFICE.
Attest: James S. Mitrisin, Clerk of the Board of Supervisors of the County ofEI Dorado, State of California. By: ______________ ~~----------- Deputy Clerk Date:
ART 1, SEC. I3.
That the right of no person to keep rand bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall be called in question; but nothing herein be construed to justify the practice of carrying concealed Weapons.
IMO it is disgraceful not to include the CO constitution, it provides for protections independent of that the mere whims of The Nine (USSC) try to decree the 2nd to mean.
Was this post pulled? The source is solid. It is important.
I am puzzled and hope it is replaced into Breaking News etc..
Is this Siskiyou county or El Darodo?
It is El Dorado County California. However I received notice by email that the same Resolution had been passed by Siskiyou on the 12th. Supposedly there was this:
“PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Board of Supervisors of the County of Siskiyou County at a regular meeting of said Board, held the 12th day of February, 2013, by the following vote of said Board:
Ayes: Armstrong, Kobseff, Bennett, Criss, Valenzuela
They do not have the resolution posted at the Siskiyou Board of Supervisors website though. When I found it in El Dorado, I thought it was the one in Siskiyou. My apologies.
It was passed in El Dorado, but the only evidence of it having passed in Siskiyou is the email I quoted here.
Thanks, I have friends in Hornbrook that will be happy.
